Debbie Jenkins from www.bookshaker.com has currently got three projects
in the pipeline that require the skills of talented, and forward-thinking, editors.

If you’ve heard of Book Shaker before then you’ll also know that they pay
unprecedented royalties to their authors. The way they can afford to pay
such big royalties is by offering professional editors a stake in the book’s
success rather than a one-off payment.

They have published the following books of mine:
Career in Your Suitcase
Find Your Passion
Expat Writer – Release the Book Within
Expat Entrepreneur

Now, for the jobbing editors amongst you, you’re probably thinking “scam”
but I’ve worked with Debbie on several occasions now and wouldn’t share
this if I didn’t trust her. Anyway, if you’re interested, then here’s her proposal…

1. Debbie is looking for editors who would like to earn up to 20% royalties from lifetime
sales of each book they work on.
2. All profit to the editor will come from the result of sales of the book, and royalties
will be paid quarterly.
3. Debbie does not pay a one-off fee for editing but instead offers a long term stake in the
intellectual property to provide ongoing income in the long term.
4. She is looking to pull together a team of around 5 editors to work on approximately
50 books during 2009.
5. Based on average sales of Bookshaker’s top 10 performers if you’d edited 10 books
you would be getting paid at least £720 every 3 months, for the lifetime of those
books, with no extra work to do.

If what Debbie is doing interests you then please complete the short form at www.bookshaker.com/drupal5/editor
Once you’ve completed the form you’ll get an auto-responder telling you more and Debbie
promises she’ll follow up soon after to answer any questions you may have asked.

Good luck

Authors needed

September 16, 2008

Yet again my publisher client needs authors. This time for two books.

One is a glossy coffee table book, on world festivals, and is very research based. Perfect for an aspiring travel writer. 50,000-60,000 words

The other is about how to be a guest at different religious ceremonies worldwide. Also research based, but it would help if the author knew about world religions. Maybe 30,000 words.

Both books pay a one off payment only. The publisher is based in London.

If you think you may be interested please contact me here at the blog or by email.
